Dr. Sears Family Essentials™ brand of children’s supplements and healthy snacks has introduced two new products to its line of Immune Plus Fruit Chews that contain Vitamins C and D, Zinc, Selenium, and Wellmune WGP®, a natural ingredient clinically proven to enhance immune health.
“Our proprietary blend mobilizes and fortifies you child's immune system while they play and work,” said Dr. William Sears, renowned pediatrician, author and lecturer. “Immunity is a key part of a healthy childhood.”
The Immune Plus Fruit Chews are available in two flavors: citrus and pom-blueberry. Immune Plus Fruit Chews are 100% all-natural and contain no artificial colors or flavors.
Biothera, the manufacturer of Wellmune WGP, had sampled the new Immune Plus Fruit Chews at the IFT 2010 Annual Meeting & Food Expo July 18-20 in Chicago.
Peer-reviewed clinical research has demonstrated that Wellmune WGP safely enhances natural immune responses that protect against a wide range of health challenges. Wellmune WGP activates billions of innate immune cells, which are the body’s first line of defense, to more quickly find and kill foreign challenges without over stimulating the immune system.
“As a medical doctor for more than 30 years, I believe that a healthy immune system is the key to prevention,” said Dr. Sears. “Wellmune WGP is safe, effective and a key ingredient in our new Immune Plus Fruit Chews.”
